Gabriela has passed the required certification exams and is experienced in all the subjects listed on this site and on Wyzant Tutors.com; she also holds a HIPAA certification for medical translation. She has studied English, French, Italian, and Romanian languages and literatures since childhood; after becoming a U.S. citizen, she earned a Master of Art degree at George Washington University (one of the four D.C. universities listed in the QS World University Ranking, 2018). Her career started in 1989 when she became a full-time translator and English instructor to researchers at the Research Institute for Bovine Breeding, Bucharest (Romania); at the same time, she provided private tutoring to children. Multitasking via teaching and translation jobs — and helping students across generational lines — has defined her career ever since. Gabriela’s background is international: born in a family of Greek origin, she grew up in Dobruja, S-E Romania. From the age of 2, she studied French; afterwards, her studies focused on languages (English, French, Romanian, Italian) and art.
In the 1990s, she relocated with her family to Naples, Italy, where she studied Italian language and art. Overseas, she worked/resided temporarily in Italy and Quebec City for linguistic and cultural studies, and worked extensively with French companies in Romania. She acquired U.S. citizenship in 1997 and has resided in Maryland, New York City, and Texas for the past 20 years (moved to Texas in 2009). In Washington D.C. and Virginia she instructed and tested U.S. diplomats through Inlingua School. Throughout a career in which her goal has been to constantly perfect and employ her knowledge of the 4 languages she has expertise in, Gabriela has also published translations: novels for Colosseum Publishing House, poetry for The American Literary Translators Association at Texas University, a French book for LiterArt XXI, and numerous business books for Open University Business School (U.K.) where she also provided televised interpreting.
Her personal articles and poems were published in The International Notebook of Poetry and Origins-LiterArt XXI. In Texas, she volunteered with English editing to the Conservative Party of Texas, USA. Gabrielle also teaches drawing and painting; she studied painting primarily at the Academy of Art in New York City and in Dallas (with artists Sam Adoquei and Dave Kramer).
To help her students with updated information, Gabriela travels often to France and Italy. In her spare time, she writes, paints, studies other languages, and tries her hand at new European recipes.
